GM Robert Hovhannisyan Wins Karen Asrian Chess Memorial

12th Women's World Chess Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog for Chess Daily News and Trivia (c) 2013

Hi everyone, 
The Armenian Chess Federation organized the 6th Karen Asrian Memorial Chess Tournament on June 16-24, 2013, in the prominent resort town of Jermuk. The 9-round Swiss event was dedicated to the memory of GM Karen Asrian, who passed away in June 2008, at the age of 28. He was member of the Armenian national team which won the first gold medal at the 2006 Chess Olympiad in Turin. Local Grandmaster Robert Hovhannisyan is the convincing winner after collecting 7,5 points and leaving the opposition a full point behind. He earned 5000 USD of the prize fund that amounted to 22,000 USD.
